How does a getaway on a remote snowy mountain with eight of your friends sound? I believe the answer you’re looking for is “No thank you, I didn’t sign up to be in some cliché horror flick.” Until Dawn, a survival horror game released by Supermassive Games centers around a group of eight friends that become trapped during their vacation getaway on a mountain where things quickly turn immensely ominous. Despite being somewhat predictable at times, this game really knows how to nail the scare or ‘jump’ factor along with the players in-game choices that have a major impact on the stories development and create a more tailored experience for the individual. Those who enjoy molding the story to their liking will definitely revel in what Until Dawn has to offer.
Edge of Eternity blends JRPG gameplay and indie innovation to create an impressive game.
The gaming market seems to be undersaturated with stellar JRPG titles these days. With Final Fantasy releases taking years to finally drop, to long awaited titles such as Kingdom Hearts 3 and Persona 5 still just being teased to players, JRPG fans have been neglected in the home console market. However, a little indie title called Edge of Eternity may have slipped under the radar of avid JRPG fans, and it may have the power to help bring back a resurgence in the genre.

After spending a full week with the Destiny beta and loving it and thinking about it non-stop until now is something that I haven’t felt for a RPG in a long time.
The Hype is Real, but is a Mobile App Overkill?
With only a few days until the awaited Destiny beta, I was made aware that an Android and iOS app was announced and reviewed on IGN and other gaming news websites…but do we really need it?A
The Legend of Korra game set to release Fall 2014.
Platinum Games, known for making Bayonetta 2, is working on a Legend of Korra video game set to release in Fall 2014. According to IGN.com, the story of the game will take place between seasons 2 and 3 of the cartoon, with Korra having to deal with the decision she made to bring together the human and spiritual worlds at the end of the second book. The Legend of Korra game is reported to feel episodic; Korra will deal with a single new issue that will be resolved by the game’s end.
It’s less then a month away from E3 2014 and Sony has surprised us with a new two minute gameplay video of The Order 1886, the highly anticipated PS4 exclusive from Ready At Dawn. After the big reveal a few months ago, some gamers were skeptical because of the lack of co-operative mode and the talk of making the game’s cut scenes at 30 frames per second (FPS) as opposed to 24 FPS, which is the frame rate most movies are captured in. Others, including myself, were flabbergasted at what Ready At Dawn had achieved with cut scenes and real-time gameplay fused into one. This seamless transition gives The Order 1886 a true next generation dynamic.

Good Times! We’re So Lucky We Got ‘Em
PlayStation fans and early adopters of the PlayStation 4 are in for a treat tomorrow. Finally, after a few months of beta testing on the PS3, PlayStation Blog Director of Strategic Planning, Peter Jamshidi has finally announced that the PlayStation Now private beta will become available for the PS4. This streaming service first announced at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 has since provided leaked information from gamers that were accepted into the private beta some months ago. People, like me, that didn’t make it into the beta will get another chance to register or possibly have another shot at receiving a voucher code via email.
New IPs Are Always Good
Square Enix’s Murdered Soul Suspect isn’t what I expected it to be, especially after what I gathered from the launch trailer. After playing it for myself, I am still intrigued with what was presented at that booth this weekend. I played only a small segment of the game, as the show floor was about to close, but from what I did get a chance to play I’m thinking it will be one I enjoy thoroughly. One of the reasons I was so eager to get my hands on the game is because it’s new. Lately feeling the brunt of the first person shooter and action game frenzy, it felt nice to end my day with the slower pace introduced in Murdered Soul Suspect.
Evolve Steals Game of the Show at PAX East 2014
It’s been almost 5 years since the last time Turtle Rock Studios released the critically acclaimed Left 4 Dead 2 on PC and Xbox 360. At PAX East 2014, the team finally unveiled their new asymmetrical cooperative/competitive shooter, Evolve, to the public. PAX media got a first hand look at the game and also saw a small demo that gave those attending a brief run-down. I must say for a person like myself who has never played any of the Left 4 Dead series, I was extremely impressed.
